UTAG to call off strike

The University Teachers Association of Ghana (UTAG) has consented to cancel its strike activity after a gathering with Parliament's Education Committee, the Education Minister and the Labor Minister.

This was revealed by the Ranking Member on the Education Committee in Parliament, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe in a meeting with Joy News' Kwesi Parker-Wilson.

The Committee recently met with the authority of UTAG, the Education Minister and the Labor Minister to carry absolution to the stalemate among UTAG and the public authority.

As indicated by the Akatsi North MP, upon bid by the Committee, the University instructors have set out to cancel the strike relying on the prerequisite that administration settles the extraordinary issues.

"On our allure, they have consented to cancel the strike relying on the prerequisite that administration is prepared to plunk down with them quickly for them to determine exceptional issues. The pastor gave us the confirmation that they will be submitted. When the Committee has coordinated, it is absolutely impossible that he as a head of the public authority assignment will neglect to meet with them regardless of whether it's 24 hours every day; they will meet," he said.

The Legislator noticed that the Committee is confident that University speakers will get back to auditoriums by Monday, February 21.

In the mean time, the Committee has entrusted the Education Minister to determine extraordinary issues inside multi week and report back to the Committee.

"As a Committee, we have allowed them multi week after UTAG have canceled the strike to finish up arrangements and report back to the Committee. A portion of their interests have been tended to," he expressed.

The Labor Division of the Accra High Court on Monday put an order on UTAG's strike.

The request from the Court follows an allure by the National Labor Commission (NLC) for an interlocutory order to suspend the strike by UTAG while exchanges proceed.

UTAG is consequently expected to end the strike until the Court decides the considerable application by the NLC.

UTAG's requests

UTAG needs government to reestablish their 2012 states of administration, which fixed the month to month pay of section level teachers at $2,084.
